As the venue of this CGD exhibition, 871 Cultural and Creative Workshop used to be Yunnan Metallurgical Kunming Heavy Industry Co., Ltd, and it now serves as a hub for culture and creativity. The red-brick factory and rusted heavy machines turned out to offer inspiration and sense of historical accumulation for the culture and creativity sector, as well as to be an excellent background for this exhibition.


The Creative Kunming Special Exhibition is the last stop of the CGD tour exhibition. Let’s look forward to the CGD tour exhibition in Euro to be held in Red Dot Design Museum (Essen) in May, 2018.
